Conversations with Alyssa Jenkins

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alyssa Jenkins.

Hi Alyssa, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
It has always been my dream to help mamas, I just was unsure how to go about it. After my 16 months breastfeeding journey it came to me. BREASTMILK JEWELRY! One year ago, I started a breastmilk jewelry company! The Simple Olive. Since then it has only become more and more successful! I have made over 500 mamas breastmilk jewelry! I also make ashes jewelry for mamas that have lost their sweet babies. As well as dried flower jewelry! I absolutely love making mamas special keepsakes they can cherish forever!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
When I started The Simple Olive, I jumped with 2 feet in! Pretty much a cannonball! I have been full speed ahead since day one and the future is looking bright.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
How I make the breastmilk jewelry is, I take breastmilk and I preserve it and clean it. Then I powder it down and mix it with resin to make it into jewelry

So maybe we end on discussing what matters most to you and why?
The thing that matters most to me is helping as many moms as I possibly can. Breastfeeding is a very special journey and I want to capture those moments for every mom.
